Experience Level: Expert
Information for the business: We are an industry association
Design details: We are looking for a freelance designer to work on two forthcoming publications.

The publications, attached to this brief (and also available on our website at, are our annual activity report and sector status report. We will be able to provide the source files in InDesign.

The work we require is as follows:

- In general we are very happy with the design of the inside pages. However, we feel it needs a greater variety of colour. At the moment we are making changes to our colour palette that will be completed by the middle of February. When this is complete, we would like the new palette to be applied to the two report designs in greater depth so they aren’t so blue-dominated. Note the layout doesn’t need to change at all – just the variety of colour. For example, in the status report, we may want a different colour for each region.
- Front covers – we would like some work doing on these. We want to make the brand more consistent and come up with a cover design that works across our suite of publications and that can be made subtly different each year, but maintains a clear identity for the organisation. In the main part we need this for the two above-mentioned publications, however there is a possibility we will need it for others further down the line.
- When the design work is signed off, we would like the two reports to be laid out with this year’s content. Note the structure will be the same as last year, so it will just be a case of flowing in the new content (with one exception – see below).
- We also need some creative work a couple of the maps / infographics pages in the sector status report – in particular those on pages 24-27. We have set this up as a separate job on here, as infographic and map design requires a different experience profile. If you are interested in this job too, you can view it separately on my profile.

In terms of timescales:

- Front covers first draft to be done by 13 February
- Colour palette tweaks to be done by 27 February
- Activity Report layout to be done in the first two weeks in March (we may send content in a staggered manner as we receive it)
- Hydropower Status Report to be done from 21 March to 3 April

Please include relevant examples of your work with your proposal. It would be good if you can quote your cost by hourly rate with an estimate of the time that will be required (so we have an idea of run-on costs if we need to do further work).
Many thanks
